A Rabbi has expressed sympathy and solidarity with Muslim communities after a 'suspicious' blaze destroyed a north London mosque.
Speaking on behalf of the Jewish communities Rabbi Miriam Berger of the nearby Finchley Reform Synagogue condemned those responsible for the fire which is strongly believed to be racially motivated and offered support:
"We stand side by side in solidarity with Muslim communities at this time. As Jews we know what it is like to have places of worship destroyed.
"We cannot allow extremism and violence to triumph. There is no room for hate in Britain today."
